Sometimes if you don't wait until light goes off before cranking it will cause a flash code...Disconnect battery to reset system..If it comes back on replace glow plugs...Best idea is have a Tech diagnose it if the reset test doesn't solve your problem...Save time and headaches....

I know that accessabilty to the glow plugs is a problem on these cars and a lot has to be removed to reach them ,but a quick test ?? pull the plug from the relay that has 4 thick wires on it ,this is the feed to each heater ,now use a multimeter to each one ,ground and the + probe to the contact and check for a resistance ,one or more could be failed ,replace the failed heater plug and then using a cheap code reader you should be able to eliminate the fault code and then the light will go out,Its a VW so you can read the codes for this year unlike a renault ? say no more their

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

SOURCE: MY GLOW PLUG LIGHT IS FLASHING IN MY DASH BOARD VW

Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck

SOURCE: engine managment light flashes (glow plugs light)

the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.

What is spring sign showing on dash of seat Ibiza sport 1.6


hi Marc

SEAT Ibiza glow plugs heating warning light - your SEAT Ibiza is equipped with an automatic glow plug system. The indicator lamp lights up while the glow plugs are preheating. If the engine fails to start immediately, the glow plugs have not finished preheating. In this case, keep the clutch pedal depressed (or keep your foot on the brake if your vehicle has an automatic gearbox) until the engine starts. (applies to diesel cars only)

  • There is a fuse box on the drivers side either under the dash or on the aids of the dash. One of them fuses could be blown.


  • The other thing that could be going wrong is the harness on the driver side door. If you open the drivers door you will see a harness stretching from the frame to the door. You can get into that harness and look for broke, bulged or rusted wires and splice in new ones. This is common with aged vehicles because of the amount that door is used.
